Robocall of the Year

It being an important primary day and all, I hope it’s okay with readers if we get down in the electoral weeds more than is customary here. And besides, you really do need to get a load of the robocall that the Gingrich campaign is using against Romney among Jewish voters in Florida.

Here’s the text:

As governor of Massachusetts, Mitt Romney vetoed a bill paying for kosher food for our seniors in nursing homes. Holocaust survivors, who for the first time, were forced to eat non-kosher, because Romney thought $5 was too much to pay for our grandparents to eat kosher. Where is Mitt Romney’s compassion for our seniors? Tuesday you can end Mitt Romney’s hypocrisy on religious freedom, with a vote for Newt Gingrich. Paid for by Newt 2012.

You can read a lengthy defense of Romney on this charge from his friends at Commentary if you like. But what’s interesting is that at this late date, Team Gingrich thinks there are enough Jewish registered Republicans in Florida who are willing on any grounds to vote for a theocrat like Newt to make this a worthy investment of their time, money, and ever-shrinking credibility. (It’s not like it’s under the radar or anything, since Gingrich himself talked about it, even throwing in a strange gratuitous shot at George Soros).

Maybe it’s one of those convoluted voter-suppression things; I don’t know. But more and more, Newt’s Florida campaign looks like it was designed by people who could screw up a one-car funeral.
